Josie and The Pussycats [WS] [DVD] [2001]

This parody and romp comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic picture format (1.85:1 aspect ratio) and the following audio track features and options: English Dolby Digital 5.1 Stereo, English DTS, and French Dolby Digital 5.1 Stereo. Closed-captioning is also included. Special or bonus features include an audio commentary narrated by the film's director and producer; a behind-the-scenes featurette/documentary called "Backstage Pass"; and some deleted footage -- three scenes, one of which is quality stuff -- that were cut from the film's theatrical release. DTS renders the sound quality exceptionally broad and fine. Picture quality is adequate without being exceptional. A proposed "Too Hot to Handle" featurette never made it into this DVD release.

Synopsis

Josie and the Pussycats
Based on the animated hit TV show of the 1970s, Josie and the Pussycats is a live-action tale of a group of young girl rockers who desire to make it big. Josie (Rachael Leigh Cook), Val (Rosario Dawson), and Melody (Tara Reid) make up an aspiring garage band that is discovered by shady megalomaniac executive Wyatt Frame (Alan Cumming), the sidekick to MegaRecords boss Fiona (Parker Posey), who runs an industry powerhouse that has been grooming the very successful boy band Du Jour. Unbeknownst to the band, MegaRecords is a company whose real intent is to brainwash young people, with subliminal messages inserted in CDs to assure a healthy sales record. Josie and her crew soon latch on to the real deal behind their new label and are forced to choose between their burgeoning rock-star success and doing what's right for future music lovers. The film also stars Gabriel Mann as Josie's love interest/folk singer Alan M. Its soundtrack features work by Counting Crows' Adam Duritz, the Go-Go's Jane Wiedlin, and Babyface. Rachael Leigh Cook's voice was dubbed by Letters to Cleo's Kay Hanley for the film's musical set pieces. ~ Jason Clark, Rovi
